The Confidant Collection

The Confidant Collection
Commissioned by Hilando Mexico

Hilando Mexico is a charity that supports the woman artisans from the Ichmul community in Yucatan, Mexico.

Valentina recreates the Conversation Chair, or Love Chair, inspired by the hand-stiched embroideries made by the Nicte-Há collective of woman artisans. A family of furniture pieces that can be break down into individual units, as armchairs, stools and ottomans. Offering a statement piece together with a range of pret-a-porter furniture to go with it.
The shapes of the settees are inspired by the organic design and natural patterns found in the actual embroideries.

The Confidant Collection honours the heritage and artistic tradition of the women of Nicte-Há. The settees are white canvas for these unique pieces of impressive quality, displaying a striking balance between contemporary design and the millenary tradition of embroidery in the Southeast of Mexico’s Peninsula.

“No sabes cuan satisfecha estoy de haber encontrado los sillones y cojines adecuados para la decoración y el espacio de mi terraza; son el toque de color y diseño que lo hacen bello y diferente. Me siento muy orgullosa de haber hecho tan buena elección y sobre todo, contribuir a la causa de Hilando México que considero un programa sensacional para motivar a las mujeres que los realizan y que son guiadas por el buen gusto y profesionalismo que siempre te han distinguido. Con afecto y orgullosamente Mexicana, Stella Chedraui de Fernández”
